Dear Loved Ones,

Greeting. To live in Haiti, one needs some nice dose of humor. It breaks the monotony of life and gives us something to lough about. Take this case of banana tree planted in the middle of the road.

Well here is the meaning. The actual president campaigned on basis of bananas. At that time, he had a nice and flourishing banana farm. Now people are waiting to improve roads but it seems that the progress on roads is slow, So from time to time when people are fed up with dust and holes on the roads, they will plant bananas in the middle of the roads as a reminder of campaign promises.

Enjoy.

In Haiti

Nzunga & Kihomi

Dear Friends,

What a great way to protest without rioting. I believe Nzunga is right that a sense of humor is required to work in Haiti. What should we plant in the road to remind politicians that they are not fulfilling their promises?

I hope you had something to smile about today.

Peace,
